SOURCE: My phone says "PUK Blocked"...

There isn't - you have to call AT&T in order to get it. There is an after hours line that your local store can use if regular customer care is late.

SOURCE: hi - bought a nokia

Hi, first of all, you did a grave mistake by entering the wrong pin which resulted in it asking for your PUK (Personal Unblocking code), and 12345678 is not and never your PUK
All sim card have a unique PUK for security reason and they come along with the sim pack when bought new, but should in case you have misplace your sim pack, you can contact your service provider to ask for you PUK which will be given to you free of charge but they might likely ask you for the proof of ownership and your imei number which can be generated by dialing *#06# on your phone...

Take care

By entering the wrong passcode ten times you've permanently disabled the SIM card. Please contact your cellular service provider for a new SIM card and unlocking code.

These directions are for an AT and T phone, but other than that would be the same for any carrier.

A PUK (PIN Unlock Key) code is required to unlock SIM cards that have become locked following three successive incorrect PIN entries. If your SIM card becomes locked, you will need to get a PUK code from your phone carrier to unlock your SIM card.

You can obtain your phone's PUK code from your carrier in one of these ways:

Log in to Your

Use a Technical Support Chat

Contact your carriers Customer Care

Get Your Phone's PUK Code Online

Go to the Phone/Device page.

From the My Phone/Device screen, select the Unblock SIM Card link under the My Make & Model heading.

The Unblock SIM screen will display your PUK code and will give you instructions for unblocking your SIM Card.

Once you receive your PUK code, you will need to enter it into your phone to set a new PIN code.

Note: If you enter the wrong PUK code 10 times in a row, your SIM card will be invalidated, and you will need to purchase a new SIM Card. The phone will display the following error: "PUK blocked call operator

My 97 monte carlo will turn over but there isn't any power to fuel pump I know it works and I've changed all the fuses and relays and also got the key checked.... I don't get it also checked...

The ECM BAT fuse powers the fuel pump through the relay. If the gray wire has power and the black wire has ground, and the fuel pump does not operate, its bad.
